I pride myself on having relationships with my customers long after the closing. I’m going to do everything I can to change your real estate experience, just like I have for all of these customers.
I have bought and sold many properties throughout my life, but my experience with C.J. surpassed them all. C.J. came to our aid in helping me purchase my dream condo in February and served my needs with such professionalism and attention to detail that we decided to use him as our listing agent for our original beachfront condo in Treasure Island. His unique low listing rate of 4.5% and strategic plan for selling were very appealing to us as clients, and with his expertise, we went under contract with just a handful of showings. I highly recommend C.J. and would hire him again if ever in need.
Dixie Meyer – Redington Shores, Florida
My wife and I had been referred to C.J. through mutual friends. We were looking for an agent that could help us navigate the unique challenges of South Tampa’s real estate market. Upon sitting down with C.J. for an initial consultation, he took the time to acquire a solid grasp of what our real estate and lifestyle goals were, in order to help us make the best possible decisions throughout the process. We were encouraged by a very clear passion for, and understanding of his craft. The sale of our home was very well-orchestrated from the beginning with very professional photos, an easy-to-use scheduler for showings, as well as an interactive 3D virtual tour to help prospective buyers get a feel for the flow of the property – all of which we believe contributed to the very rapid sale of our home. Finding a new home in South Tampa was, as one might expect, a bit more cumbersome given the competitive and fast-paced nature of it but C.J. worked quickly and tirelessly to identify solid options which best suited our needs and wants in an ever-changing market. Even though he faced many challenges during our search for a new home, (there was a point when Hurricane Irma was approaching that we weren’t sure there would be any homes left standing to pursue), he remained patient and persistent throughout while ultimately helping us find and purchase our new home which we couldn’t be happier with! At the end of the day, we wholeheartedly recommend C.J. to assist with your home buying and selling needs and we will certainly be using him as our Realtor in the future. We were in constant communication as he is extremely responsive throughout the entire process which we greatly appreciate. C.J. worked hard to earn our trust and respect and we are very happy to report that he now has them both. Thank you C.J.!
Bryan and Sandra Batassa – Tampa, Florida
C.J. literally got on a plane and interrupted his family vacation just to help us out after a crisis with our previous Realtor! We were in a time-sensitive situation, and he went above and beyond what I would consider the normal role of a Realtor. His communication and attention to detail were impeccable, and he made us feel like we were a priority all the way through the process. Thanks C.J.! We will definitely recommend you any chance we get!
Craig and Stephanie Compton – Land O Lakes, Florida
Working with C.J. Spang on the purchase of our home was both a pleasure and a blessing. We had worked with several real estate agents in the area in search of a home and received the same treatment; sending multiple listings via internet for us to go through, not listening to our wants and needs and trying to get us to settle so many times on properties we weren’t interested in. Then we came in contact with C.J. He was friendly, professional, knowledgeable and confident he would find us our home. He immediately devised a plan and stuck with it to the end. In about a week, we found our home and couldn’t be happier. C.J. continues to go beyond the sale of our home as a consistent contact for us with questions of the area and with referrals for contractors in the area for upgrades. We continue to remain in touch with C.J. and appreciate all the work he has done and continues to do for us, way after the sale. We highly recommend C.J. Spang for your real estate needs.
Glen and Christine Sostak – Largo, Florida
I highly recommend C.J. Spang to sell your home and find another that meets your needs. I needed to sell my residence of 10 years and find another that would be a considerable downsize. C.J. was recommended by my son that only knew him socially through their children. By the end of our first meeting I knew that C.J. not only had exceptional market knowledge, but that he knew how to maximize it to display and highlight the features of my home. He went through each room and made recommendations to show the highlights prior to listing. By the time he was done – I wanted to buy it. I know this doesn’t happen every time, but it did to me. The first day on the market I had three offers, one over asking price. The purchaser later told me that as soon as she saw the listing she knew it was for her. Yes, I am impressed. On top of that the sale was the highest ever in the neighborhood. The search for a new home was more difficult because of the market and the requirements I placed on the purchase. Nevertheless, C.J. stuck with me and worked through the negotiations resulting in the successful purchase of a new home. C.J. is a superior and dedicated agent and gets results!
Michael Diener – Largo, Florida
This was our first home buying process so we were very nervous and didn’t know what to expect, but C.J. was truly amazing from start to finish. He walked us through each step of the process, from establishing our wish list, home visits, inspections, mortgage, insurance, etc. and never pressured us into any decisions that we weren’t comfortable with. Once we realized that a move-in ready house in our preferred neighborhoods was out of our budget, C.J. helped us see the potential of a house that needed some renovations but would still be within our budget after the work was done. He assisted us in setting up some contractors to prepare estimates for the work, and because during the closing process we did not own the home yet, he made sure he was available whenever we needed him to let the contractors in the house. Whenever a question came up during the process, and there were a bunch, he always answered our calls or responded within 30 minutes. We never felt alone or lost because C.J. was so responsive. Even though we had a modest budget, he treated us the same as if we were buying a multi-million dollar home. We would absolutely recommend C.J. to anyone!!
Jordan and Courtney Solomon –St. Petersburg, Florida
C.J. worked with us for eight months to find our first home. He was tenacious, incredibly thorough, readily available and always pleasant to work with. Most importantly, he was very patient with us. Thanks to C.J., we not only survived, but also enjoyed the typically arduous task of finding our perfect home.
Rachel Martinko – Seminole, Florida
From the minute I began my home search C.J. was so incredibly helpful. C.J. treated me as if I was his only client, and made finding me a good home for the right price his top priority. C.J. was absolutely outstanding for the entire duration of my search. C.J. created a customized list of potential properties that I may like that checked off all my “must haves”. The property I ended up going with is absolutely a slice of paradise. C.J. is patient, caring, and extremely motivated to help you find the place that is right for you. C.J. was available literally (and I mean quite literally) any time, day or night. He was incredibly responsive to any correspondence I sent him and if ever I had a question he answered it instantly! Buying my first home was a huge decision, and not once did I ever feel rushed, or like I was second guessing myself. C.J. is as professional as they come! At the end of the whole process, I consider C.J. a very good friend of mine, and will absolutely use him for all my future real estate endeavors!
Chris Rice – Palm Harbor, Florida
Working with C.J. to find my first home was an amazing experience. He was endlessly patient as I narrowed my options and locations. As a first-time home buyer, I appreciated how thorough he was in explaining all the steps in the process right up to closing. C.J. is knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and kind, and I highly recommend him to make your home buying experience smooth and enjoyable.
Katelyn Quaglieri – Largo, Florida
C.J. is definitely an agent that goes above and beyond for his clients. He makes an effort to get to know you as a person/family so that he can tailor the areas and home styles to focus on. He worked with us for months and showed us countless homes until we FINALLY found the PERFECT home! I’ve bought and sold a few houses in my time and I’ve never had a Realtor that I truly fully trusted until I worked with C.J. He is honest to a fault, and really puts your needs as a buyer in front of everything else. I could write a book about my experience with using him as a buyer’s agent and wouldn’t have a single negative thing to say.
Steve and Candy Martin – Apollo Beach, Florida
Let me first start out by saying, C.J. Spang was an absolute pleasure to work with. The home buying process can be very frustrating and difficult, from first finding the right property to all the contracts and paperwork, but C.J. did everything he could to make the process easy and enjoyable. We bought our property during the holiday season, which could have made it even more stressful, but C.J. was always available. As my husband and I do not live in Florida full time, we had our 20-year-old daughter doing all the research and looking at the properties. Until we found properties we liked, she was the only one in contact with C.J. He always treated her professionally and never acted like she wasn’t a real client, even though I’m sure it seemed like at times she was never going to purchase anything. We were never in a hurry to buy, so she was in contact with him for over a year before we got serious about buying a property. He never pressured us towards a property we did not love 100% percent, and was willing to work with us whenever we threw wrenches in the original plan. When we finally bought our property, C.J. had cleaned it prior to us moving in, had offered to help us move boxes, and had given us a $50 gift card to buy food with. He helped make our new property feel like a home from the moment we moved in. If we ever chose to buy another property in the area, C.J. will be the person we call. We cannot recommend him enough to those looking to purchase a property.
Kathy Yoast – Tampa, Florida
C.J. is by far the best real estate agent that is in the business. The 4.5% commission beats all industry standards, and you’re getting better service. He knew the community and letting me know up front what was expected to be the sale price. He offers first-class service including a virtual reality tour, professional photography and an information booklet of your property. He was on call 24/7 and always kept me informed by the minute, which is awesome when you’re selling your home!! C.J. negotiated my numbers on the sale past my expectations, and he answers the phone and texts every time – he’s just amazing. He also spent the weekend negotiating the down payment on my new construction purchase -unbelievable!!! C.J. is a really hard-working guy – which is hard to find in this industry – and always looked out for us. I have made a really good friend in C.J. I will always refer him to anybody to give him a try – you won’t be disappointed!! If I’m Selling or buying I’m calling C.J.!!
Tom and Jane Marengo – Ruskin, Florida
I have bought and sold 10 homes over the years. C.J. is without a doubt the best and easiest Realtor I’ve had to work with. He kept me informed on everything. It was a real pleasure having him as my agent.
Bud and Mia Harris – Wimauma, Florida
After much prayer and interviewing 6 different Realtors it was clear to us that God had selected C.J. to represent us as we sold our home. It’s clear now why God led us this way. 9 days and we were under contract! Wow!!! C.J. was so professional and handled all the details that can be so confusing when one starts down this path. Throughout the whole transaction he was by our side and looking out for our best interests making sure we walked through this process without a hitch. It is without hesitation that we would recommend C.J. to anyone looking to sell their home. He’s trustworthy, efficient and so knowledgeable that it removes any worry that might surface.
Glenn “Skip” and Kathleen Watkins – Seminole, Florida
My wife and I had a week and a half to pack up our entire house and move to Ohio after receiving a job offer as an assistant principal. My wife told me that C.J. Spang was a great person and a great professional. After meeting with C.J., I quickly realized we could trust him with all of our affairs regarding the sale of our home. Everything that we had to do, we would need to do from Ohio. C.J. handled everything for us and quickly found a buyer and set a closing date. C.J. never wasted my time, everything was handled through phone calls, text messages and e-mails. The two times I felt I needed to speak to him he answered the phone without it going to voice mail. I met C.J. for the first time four days before moving from Florida to Ohio, and every time we spoke he always made me feel that I was first on his priority list. The day of the closing, C.J. represented us in the room and called once to clarify a small detail and texted me when everything was completely done. For someone who never sold a personal home before, and after living in the same house for thirteen years, we were a little nervous. I could not imagine going through this process with anyone else, I would not hesitate to recommend C.J. for any one’s personal or professional residence. C.J. is a true professional with a way of making you feel like part of his family.
Dr. Larry Balduff – St. Petersburg, Florida
We moved from out of state and needed to find a home quickly. C.J. was very patient and showed us houses in various neighborhoods before we found the place we wanted to call home. The home had multiple offers, and with C.J.’s expert direction, we were able to come out on top. His professionalism and direct style worked well for us and we would recommend him to anyone searching for their dream home in the Tampa Bay area.
David and Valerie Carrillo – Tampa, Florida
We have had many experiences with Realtors in the past, but not one this memorable. C.J. is a great person and Realtor! He is very efficient and knowledgeable of the market, property values and legal issues. He is friendly, yet always professional. He made us feel like we were always top priority. We are from out of state and finding our “dream come true” condo in Florida would not have been such an amazing experience if it wasn’t for C.J. guiding us. He immediately answered any phone calls, texts and emails from us. He made us feel very comfortable and helped us to understand the entire process. Purchasing a Florida condo is very different from purchasing a home in Pennsylvania. He is dedicated and went over and above what a “typical Realtor’s” job description entails. We absolutely recommend C.J. to future clients. We have not just purchased a wise investment, but a home away from home that we hope to enjoy for a long time. We want to thank C.J. again for making this process go smoothly, quickly, and easily.”
Tom and Joanne Andros – Duncannon, Pennsylvania
C.J. provided very good advice throughout the marketing, selling and closing processes. My home was under contract in under 30 days! Thanks C.J.!
Dennis Capps – Apollo Beach, Florida
C.J. is very honest, knowledgeable, dependable and extremely patient with his clients. He’s an excellent real estate agent, a person you can trust with your house and know he will work the hardest to get the job done. Working with C.J. makes you feel you are working with a friend who has your best interest in mind. He makes sure you understand the process from beginning to end. Before we spoke with C.J, we had interviewed five Realtors, but none like him. I felt very comfortable handing him the keys to my house, and I forgot to mention that during the entire sale process we were living out of the state. He created an awesome presentation which included the tools and strategies he would use to market my home. The passion for his work and profession shows in everything he does. I have meet no equal. If I ever purchase/sell in Florida again, he will be no doubt the first person I call.
Eduardo Vander Laat – Wimauma, Florida
We had the pleasure of working with C.J. Spang when selling our rental property, and he couldn’t have made the experience anymore faster, easy and enjoyable for us. In 11 days, we got a buyer and could have closed in 5 weeks if not for Hurricane Irma. We have worked with many Realtors in the past but C.J. is by far the best. He is very professional, organized, knowledgeable, reliable, honest and accommodating. He was always available either in person, by phone, email, or text even after the process was closed. He also saved us a lot on his low 4.5% commission. We definitely highly recommend C.J. to all our family and friends.
George and Zenaida Mangonon – Valrico, Florida
C.J. did a great job listing my home. He used a state-of-the-art virtual tour, professional photography and a drone. His follow-through and timeliness were much appreciated. Had I not moved out of state, I would have enlisted him to purchase another home.
Roberta Migneault – Largo, Florida
We have been totally impressed with C.J. from the first time we spoke, to the end of our home purchase. His customer service is so superior to other Realtors that we have dealt with. He never failed to return our calls, answered our questions about homes which we were interested in, as well as helped us get acquainted with the area. He took us from the North end of the Gulf to the South end, and in three days, we saw as many homes as we could fit in. In our past dealings with Realtors, they’ve wanted to show just the properties within their area and not beyond, but C.J. did just the opposite and listened to our wants and desires. I would recommend C.J. to anyone in need of an expert. He is one of the best.
Bob Dorn and Barbara Amato – Rotonda West, Florida
C.J. Spang was a great help in buying a new house and selling our old house. What I really liked about working with C.J. on the purchase and sale of our houses, besides him being very personal type of person, was that he always responded very promptly to every telephone, call or text message when questions came up. That really made a difference as time went along and decisions had to be made. Negotiations on the purchase and sale were handled very professionally, and the guidance he gave regarding the negotiations was very valuable and helped things move along very smoothly.
